Default LiPo Battery Issue?

Just purchased a powerlab 6 and am having issues charging my 3S 2200mAh lipos out at the field using a car battery (12v) as the power source. I have gone into the options in the charger menu and selected "battery" as the power source and have selected "fast charge" and 4.4amps as the charge rate.

The issue is that I am only getting a maximum of 1amp coming out of the car battery? Am I doing something wrong or is there another setting in the charger that needs adjusting?

Cheers.
Have you tried another LiPo battery?

Those Cellpro chargers will really back off on the charging rate if they run across a battery out of balance. The charger goes to a much lower charge rate, while it uses its one ampere ability to balance out the cells.

Use the Cellpro charger, and scroll to the voltage on each cell, and make sure they match up. Exactly.
